I’m currently taking an online scrapbooking class with Shimelle called Something From Almost Nothing, all about hitting our stashes and using up our scrap supplies. It’s a nice subject for me especially since I’m going through major Spring cleaning and organization – or at least attempting to do so! I’m catching up on the prompts and going through a simple hybrid process.  I decided to use some kraft paper I have, working digitally to design the layout or create a journaling element, printing it out and then combining all of it together to finish.  Simple and clean, I think…


My first page is the cover for the celebrate life album – about my life here in Italy.  The theme of celebrate life seemed to fit perfectly and for this first page we were challenged to use up metal elements in our stash.  I rocked out some brads and jewelry making supplies that have just been sitting around. Bright yellow background because I love it as my happy color.


The second prompt gave us ideas on using all those smaller scraps of patterned paper we might have and this is the layout I came up with. I journaled about the things that make me want to celebrate life.


Third page I did was using up ribbon and in my case, it wasn’t a lot of bits, rather just leftover white ribbon from wedding crafts last year. My journaling and doodle is all about togetherness, a simple and clean layout.

There’s already another prompt to work on for today – 3 a week – so I’m off to play now! Thanks for stopping by.
